We had a dry summer. This rain is unbelievable!

Yeah, we had a really ridiculous rainstorm the other day. We actually had tornado-capable weather in Chicago for the first time in about a decade. There wasn't one, thankfully.

Understandably so I'd love to go to Europe, I've just never had the chance (or the money). Maybe someday.

Gotta go. We're supposed to be in the city in an hour.

I still have to work out if I can make Europe happen. It is $$$$.


Might catch you this weekend; but it's one of those in and out ones!

I shouldn't DIS so late, my brain doesn't seem to be working, sorry. I hope the Spurs pull it off.

I think my Aunt and I might need some girl time, Tea at the Empress would be great. We could send the guys off somewhere else.

Sounds like some great trips. I love to see pics of HHI.

I'd be a Smithsonian geek too if I'd ever get there.

I can't wait to see what you'll create once you're in the culinary program.

Nice idea!

Sure, I'd love to see some of your creations. I don't have a creative bone in my body so I appreciate the talent it takes to do it.

I'm doing fine. I'm happy it's finally Friday!

It takes some getting used to. My carpal tunnel has been acting up since I moved into the bakery, but that was expected. I really do love it, though

Link! That goes directly to my baking tag, since there's a ton of other stuff on there, too.

I have to work tomorrow, but I'm off Sunday and Tuesday. Tomorrow shouldn't be too bad (I hope).

OMG! We just came from the most amazing event. Dinner was pretty good, but we sat with Marty Sklar and after dinner were treated to a somewhat private concert put on by Robert Shermsn in the Enchanted Tiki Room! When I say semi private I mean there were 100 or less of us present.

AND PIO there was no one telling us that video was prohibited so I caught a bunch of it on my phone! As soon as I figure out how to get it on my computer I'll send it to you. Then I'll try to figure out how to post it.
